Keith Banner, a painter, surface designer, and designer of the Keith Alexander line, has lived in New York City, Nassau Bahamas, Los Angeles, California and now a resident of
Albuquerque, New Mexico.
An exhibition at the May Company's "Street Gallery" and the Toronto Dominion Bank, in
Los Angeles, California, launched Keith Banner's career, featuring oil and acrylic paintings.
Keith then moved on to work in graphic design, computer generated art, etching, and sculpture.
Keith's Caribbean background has been a major influence in his use of color and texture, which for him are two of the most important aesthetic considerations. His style ranges from varied ethnic designs to modern abstract art.
Keith has studied at Otis Parson School of Design, Los Angeles Trade Technical College, Pierce College, Los Angeles City College, San Bernardino, and Riverside Community College.
Keith has exhibited for the May Company's Street Gallery (Los Angeles, California), Toronto Dominion Bank (Los Angeles, California), Lucy Florence Art Gallery (Leimert Park, California), The New Mexico State Capitol Rotunda (Santa Fe, New Mexico) and the Albuquerque African American Performing Art Center.
